Standby, but now how do I get out?


I have a debian net install.

I was searching for a way to go into standby and I found
echo mem > /sys/power/state

Problem is, this kills everything and I have to be "on-site" to get it back up.

Is there a way to go into standby that I can get out of with an secure shell?

(even just being able to time the standby like, for an hour, would be nice)

It's because acpi-support package is needed. I've planned to add it in the text, but haven't got published this updated notice yet!

Thank you for your help, I have not been able to get it to wake up
on an SSH network connect. And usually I can't get the network back up
once it goes to sleep.

However, my disk drive has been spinning down after about 5 minutes, so I don't need sleep. (the disk drive and fan on this box are loud)

Thanks for your help! it has helped me understand what acpi does. And I hope it helps future people searching for a way to turn their computer off.
